Torquay, Regency Coast and Riviera

From our base in Torquay – the premier resort of the English Riviera – we discover the elegant town of Sidmouth, which is a fine Regency town where so many of the period town houses remain intact as they were in the 19th century. Take in even more of this spectacular region with our excursions to picturesque Brixham and charming Kingswear. Why not join our optional excursions to Plymouth and Dartmoor and tick even more destinations off your list?

From tales of Sir Francis Drake and the Spanish Armada, to the sailing of the Mayflower and the rebuilding of the city after World War II, there is so much history to discover in the waterfront Barbican area of the city. Alternatively, the city centre has been modernised and provides all the high street stores and popular cafés you'd expect!
